As part of our #WednesdayWoman campaign on Instagram to raise awareness of women in recruitment, we asked our female employees what they like most about SThree.
Here’s what some female members from our teams across the United Kingdom and Ireland had to say.
Kayleigh Bottomley, Associate Business Manager, Progressive, London
“I love SThree because it allows people who are truly dedicated to build a fantastic career with purpose for themselves.”
“Take myself for example; I’ve had eight promotions in seven and a half years in my career with SThree and our specialist brands. I genuinely don’t know many other companies where a similar level of progression is possible.”
“I also like the fact that SThree celebrates and supports women in recruitment. They nominated me for two incredible awards last year and I am proud to say I won both of them. Being recognised and put forward for awards by your employer gives me an incredible sense of achievement and makes me proud to work for a company like SThree.”
“I heard a great quote recently, ‘diversity is when you count the people, inclusion is when the people count’. I believe it’s important that every single person in an organisation can bring their true self to work, be authentic and feel comfortable. I’m part of a diverse company that is committed to creating an inclusive environment, and that can only lead to great things.”
Nicole Bolton, Recruitment Consultant, Computer Futures, Manchester
“When I interviewed for a role at SThree two years ago, I realised how fast I could progress in my career within this company; just by working hard and choosing a career path that suits me. Since being with SThree, I’ve been promoted twice.”
“For me, the best thing about working for SThree is the career progression. You have the opportunity to work across many sectors, roles and even countries.”
“I also really enjoy the team I work in. The atmosphere is brilliant and everyone is supportive which makes for a great work environment."
"I also find that individuals are being accepted for who they are at SThree and treated fairly, irrespective of their backgrounds or personal preferences.”
Lucy Crowell, Recruitment Consultant, Huxley, London
“One of the best things about SThree and Huxley as one of the specialist brands within the SThree Group, is that there are literally no limits to what you can achieve.”
“As my employer, I experienced SThree to be very supportive. They provide you will all the tools you need to become the best professional version of yourself.”
“What I also find very empowering is that I have many female role models at Huxley who have come from various different backgrounds.”
"One of them is my mentor who always takes the time to listen to my questions and guides me to reach my potential.”
Lauren Campbell, Associate Recruitment Consultant, Computer Futures, Dublin
“I started my career at SThree back in May 2016. While I definitely had difficult times, my confidence has grown in many different ways since then. I am a lot happier in what I am doing and have found a healthy work-life balance.”
“Everyone at SThree is very supportive, there is always someone to turn to. This is a company I can see a future with.”
“For me, what sets SThree apart from other companies, is that they value and celebrate each individual for their unique skill-sets, attitudes and personalities.”
“SThree has provided me with a platform and day by day, step by step I can envision ways of making it to the top – I’m not stopping until I get there.”
